Now we're not here to argue if it's real or not but we are here to discuss something you can do in this once of a lifetime event. Having an altercation with Fate.
Let's say one day you're leaving your home and you happen to run into Fate personified. He's a real person in this instance and you will pretty much know 100% that he is who you think it is. You have four options you can choose from on how you want to greet him. He will not hold it against you for any of the choices you choose to commit.
ie: He won't number your days or have you die horribly in the worst way you can imagine. To you this guy is responsible for all the horrible stuff you hear or read on the news that happens to people and it usually ends in death. The choices are:
1) Kiss his ass
2) Smash his face in with a sledgehammer
3) Throw him off Mount Everest
4) Give him a hug, high-five or hand-shake
Now you have to choose one and he won't leave you alone unless you do any of the four above.
